Caroline Waters - A Heartfelt Explorer
“With a stylistic comfort zone nestled snugly between George Gershwin, Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones, Norwegian Singer/ songwriter and composer Caroline Waters is one of those rare artists who have the ability to transform pain and heartache into strength and a love of life that resonates throughout their music. Graced with a clear and tender voice, the multi- instrumentalist is part sultry jazz diva, part international minstrel and part idealistic folkster. ” - Cat Johnson

Caroline starred in her first movie at age three and often performed as a duo with her legendary entertainer dad, Per Asplin. She toured with the National Theatre of Norway at age seven and eight, had a musical written for her to star in at nine, introduced Danny Kaye to Norway at ten, hosted a TV-show at twelve and performed for the International Olympic Committee in Switzerland at fourteen. By age sixteen Caroline had become a celebrated Jazz entertainer and musical ambassador for her home country, Norway, with more than 2000 shows to her name. As a voice over artist, she is best know for her roles as Christopher Robin and Roo in Norwegian film versions of Disney's Winnie The Poo.
At eighteen, Caroline nearly died a serious car accident that left her with a crushed left leg and traumatic brain injury. It took four years for her to come back to a sense of self and purpose. Her ability to express herself musically, when all other methods of communication failed her, played a major part in her recovery. And after a successful Neurofeedback treatment program with brain specialist Dr. Margareth Ayers, Waters graduated top of her class at The Dick Grove School of Music.
Caroline dedicated her first solo album Compassion to her dearest friend, Stefanie Stroh. The search for Stefanie, who mysteriously vanished without a trace in serial killer territory, was instrumental in helping Caroline find her true calling. Ever since then, Caroline Waters has been a fierce advocate for equality and human rights, actively assisting in the search for missing people.
Waters' productions so far include seven solo albums, music for nine films and two one-woman shows, two musical comedies, one musical thriller and numerous live shows. See Resume for details.
Finding Venus, Caroline's most recent double album and musical, tells the story of how she was able to recover and find a sense of identity and purpose after the near death accident that left her with post traumatic amnesia.
